Regarding connecting places in a country like India, where many branch lines exist along with trunk lines, which of the following would be your stand regarding any state with reasonable number of branch lines to ensure the best railways in the state?
Intra(within)-State Connections needs to be well-established21%4
Inter-State(between states) Connections needs to be well-established from capital city only0%0
Inter-State(between states) Connections needs to be well-established from capital city as well as other cities in the state0%0
Capital City only should be only connected to major places and long distance cities(>1000 kms). being an Xfer point for other cities within the state0%0
Cities other than capital cities also should be connected with major cities and long distances(>1000 kms) atleast by weeklies79%15

Large cities which are neither a state-capital nor a railway-HQ but have a good traffic potential often get neglected in matter of new trains/ projects/ stoppages etc. Such cities need to be properly taken car of.

* To get proper attention, Power of a Political big shot or status of Rly HQ housing top IR officials is a necessity.
* Under current politico-bureaucratic structure, there seems to be no remedy to this problem. A little bit of improvement in this respect was visible during the tenure of Mr Prabhu but it was too little & too late for IR, for any appreciable improvement.
